The team at Formal Red made the process for our groomsmen a fun and straightforward experience. Their shop in Fitzroy feels more like boutique retailer than wedding hire shop and while we had the choice to hire suits - our groomsmen opted to buy because of the great quality and value. Add that to their 5 star service - we couldn't recommended them highly enough.

Great suits and very reasonable prices. The service offered by formal red was great , from the moment we entered the shop we were explained everything in great detail and the suits all fitted the groomsman perfectly ! We could not have been happier!

My husband absolutely loves his custom made suit. He originally went with the intention to hire, but upon meeting the boys, he realised they were professional tailors. They are young and funky too, so tailored a really well made and smart suit which looked fantastic on the day!

Formal Red  

Hi Elise, Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so glad that the wedding was such a success and judging by the photos we have seen we all agree that you both looked amazing on the day. Nick was a real gentleman and we are glad he enjoyed the process as much as we did. Best of luck to you both.

Spiro and the team at Formal Red were absolutely fantastic to work with. We required 5 suits for our wedding and they provided flexibility to either hire or buy which made it really easy for the groomsmen to choose either. The suits themselves were super comfortable and looked great as well.

My husband and I are so grateful to George and Spiro for taking such meticulous care in helping choose a sharp, stylish and quality suit for him and the best man. George and Spiro were very friendly, knowledgable and experienced. We highly recommend Formal Red, you won't be disappointed!

Groom and Groomsmen dressed by Formal Red. My partner and I briefly discussed our ideas with them, and they quickly came up with a look that matched. When they didn't have the colour we wanted to hire in their standard rotation, they went to some lengths to introduce the colour / style we wanted for hire. Very appreciative of this act. Staff were very interested to know what we were trying to convey in our dress, and provided options for consideration. Happy to have trusted them with my suit.

Spiro was extremely knowledgeable, personable and excellent in every aspect including his recommendations and all-round service. Spiro helped us choose the ideal suits for the bridal party and fathers, ensuring each suit fit perfectly.

As a bride, it was so amazing to know that the lads had had such an awesome experience choosing their suits with the expert guidance of formal red. We loved these suits and I can't thank them enough for the time and flexibility they gave us with people travelling in and out, but always delivering and so kindly! Thank you!

The suits from formal red were fantastic and the staff were just as good. From the moment i first spoke to them, it was clear they were very knowledgeable. I was entirely sure what i wanted to have but by the end i was incredibly happy with what i wore for my wedding day. My groomsmen also hired their suits and commented just how well it fit, which doesn't often happen!

Being fabulously dressed is one of a few of my favourite things. Thanks to the team at Formal Red (both Ray and George), both my husband and I felt on top of the world in our wedding suits. If you go elsewhere for your suit, you will regret it.

Mens suits were fabulous! Great hire place, they did muck up a shirt and refunded for the mistake but they were willing to uber out a new one on our wedding day which was nice.

For a fussy groom Formal Hire was the best choice. They have a great team of staff that are helpful and friendly and a great showroom where the groomsman could feel comfortable. Suits were well presented and altered to fit. We would highly recommend!

The service at Formal Red was great, they were friendly and professional. I was hiring the groom's suit and you can imagine that I was quite particular about what I wanted and it needed to be perfect. The suit was high quality and you could not tell that it was a rented suit.

Formal Red  

Thanks Penelope for your kind words and review :)

We used Formal Red for our groomsmen attire. We can not recommend them enough! Friendly, understanding, efficient and professional throughout the whole experience. They definitely stood out as clean and modern where a lot of places did not. Prices were very reasonable and definitely a hire company that we would recommend further!

Formal Red  

Thanks for lovely review. We are glad that your day was such a great success and it was our pleasure to be part of it.

Awesome suits. My husband and all the groomsman were just so happy with them. You couldn't even tell it was a rental! They made sure they measured and gave us ample time to return the suits. They were also very accommodating to our large bridal party's time constraints as well!

Formal Red  

Thanks Joanne for the great review. We loved working on your wedding. The guys were fun to have in, and they scrubbed up handsomely. We are so glad the wedding went well and anytime you need us don't hesitate to contact us. Send us some pics when you get a chance!

Groomsmens suits were hired from them, they did a great job in altering the suits to fit the boys perfectly. I was very sceptical at first with hiring suits but i was very impressed with the quality and fit. My husband purchased his suit from them. It also is great quality and was tailored perfectly.
